Mr Murphie wants to establish a re-enactment society in the city to entertain and educate locals and visitors on the proud history of the area.
The society would focus on the colonial era in Australia and the Hunter region and Mr Murphie said it would be positive for Maitland.
“What we need is a governing body to start with.
“We have so many places like the courthouse and the waterfront to produce historically accurate re-enactments and it would be great for the region.”
Mr Murphie has also relaunched his ghost tours of Morpeth, with the first comeback tour on Friday night.
